In comparison, although not as powerful algorithmically, what level of heat do your GPU's produce versus your CPUs?
6-core CPU only would produce only 27K PPD.
Wow, thats quite a sad return for a workhorse proc. I'm guessing thats a hex-core 6/12 HT?

I mostly stopped gaming on the PC before GPU folding debuted, so I tend to have pretty wimpy GPUs that aren't much good for folding. GPU folding on Linux (what I normally run as my OS) was also problematic until (relatively) recently. So these two factors conspired to keep me from ever really getting into GPU folding...
With few exceptions I'm basically in the same boat, mostly BSD variants. However I have no intention of going the GPU route, I enjoy being old & cranky & reminiscing about the good 'ol SMP days.
